Q. Can design save lives?


Q. Can clothing comfort a grieving person?A: Anastasia Edwards-Morel, Fashion Design MFA ’19, created a garment that inflates and “embraces” a person, relieving stress from grief. 

"What excites me is that we have not been doing fashion design well enough. As a true millennial, I want to change that."

Q. Can design save lives?A: In a collaboration with Montefiore Hospital, faculty member Lauren Zodel created Baby Slips, a garment that helps prevent new mothers from dropping their babies.

We got an email afterwards from the Patient Safety Director that said "We may have saved multiple babies lives having made this garment."
